Densie Austin: Get Smart About Skin Care!

One of the steadies in my life the past two years are the Morning Streatch emails that I receive from Denise Austin.  These emails have helped to keep me motivated in my weight loss and maintaining goals. 

Sometimes it's about exercise,  sometimes about great meals,  and sometimes motivationial.   Today's was about skin care.   Something that we forget about as important part of our daily life.   So I wanted to share with you Denise's words about skin care this morning.

Feel Great!   Get Smart About Skin Care!

Taking care of your skin is so important — it's out there for the world to see, and it has to last you a lifetime! A good skin care regimen is a daily commitment, but it should take only a few minutes. The results will be worth it!

While a good dermatologist can help you tackle any serious skin issues, good skin care generally boils down to three key steps: cleanse, rejuvenate, and moisturize. First, make washing your face a must-do part of your morning and nighttime routines — and never, ever go to bed with makeup on! If you need a reminder, keep a gentle skin cleanser right out on the countertop. Next, at night, undo the day's damage to your skin with a concentrated repair serum. These products pack a powerful punch and work like your very own fountain of youth. Finally, finish with a moisturizer that contains an SPF of at least 15 to help prevent signs of aging and keep your skin looking fresh and smooth. If you'd like, add an eye cream or night cream for added defense against wrinkles.

And there you have it! Having a gorgeous, healthy complexion isn't hard, and just as with exercise and eating right, the effort you invest today will really pay off in the long run! Go for the glow!
